NEW YORK (WABC) -- Sabra Dipping Company has issued a voluntary recall of some of its hummus and spreads because of possible listeria contamination.

The FDA says the affected products were manufactured before November 8th at a plant where listeria was found.

Consumers are urged to discard any product with a 'best before' date through January 23, 2017 on the lid.

Sabra's organic hummus, salsa, guacamole and Greek yogurt dips are not included in the recall.

Some of the products included are:

*Sabra Hummus Caramelized Onion

*Sabra Hummus Classic

*Sabra Hummus Garlic

*Sabra Hummus Red Pepper

A full list of products recalled can be found on Sabra's website.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Symptoms of listeriosis vary, but usually include fever, muscle aches, stiffness, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
